    We couldn’t have asked for a more well equipped property. We would highly recommend this property and will definitely return. We hired the Granary also as there was a large group of us. Absolute luxury. Thanks Huw.

  • "The house was amazing the location was stunning."

    Perfect house for families wanting a relaxing break. There isn’t much in the village so we drove to Llangollen for the day one day and that was good. We also went to the waterfalls which was lovely. The hot tub was brilliant and the view from the house is beautiful. Can’t recommend this house enough. Thanks again.

  • "The cottage is absolutely beautiful, there were 9 of us and we didn't at any point feel that we were on top of each other."

    The games room was lots of fun, and my little boy loved the sandpit and swing. The owner was really friendly too

  • "This property is a fantastic place for a large group or two families to share."

    The cottage itself was huge with all that we could have needed with plenty of space for us all. Great kitchen (where we spent most of our time), 5 lovely en suite bedrooms and absolutely awesome views across the valley. The hot tub, games room and shared play area were a huge hit with the kids we had in our party and really helped to make our week’s stay. We did attempt a couple of walks to the village which took about 40 mins so you’ll need to be prepared to drive out to go to a shop, pub etc. A really fantastic relaxing holiday - would love to return one day.

    Finished to a very high standard with everything you need for a perfect stay. The games room and hot tub was a great hit for everyone. The owner Huw is a lovely, friendly man and nothing was too much trouble for him. The views and surrounding countryside are beautiful. If you are thinking of booking this cottage then go for it - you will not be disappointed. We would definitely go back.

    Fantastic bedrooms with huge beds and a bathroom in each. The hot tub and games room were an added bonus! Nice big kitchen/diner with everything you could ask for with preparing meals. Nice living room with a great log burner, really cosy in the evenings. A beautiful area of Wales with many quaint villages. Lovely walks with waterfalls. All in all a fabulous stay and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending for a lovely relaxing break.

  • "This place is amazing!"

    Easy to find with a sat nav, just turn left in to the Barns instead of going up the narrow hill! East parking next to the property, access was easy with the key safe. The property was exceptionally clean as well as lovely and warm on arrival and the under floor heating was an added bonus! All the rooms are very well presented with high quality furnishings, modern features and very spacious. The only downside for me was the shower in the room at the top of the stairs, it's a great shower but the bathroom got a little wet as there's no side doors to the shower. There's plenty if seating in the lounge for the family to spend time together and we also found the sofa next to the dining table useful. The kitchen has everything you need, just ashame the hob is electric and not gas, but no big deal. The hot tob is amazing! It provides wonderful views during the day and the lights at night provide a wonderful effect! The games room is excellent. Despite the pool table getting jammed a couple of times, the owner Huw was there pretty soon after to sort the issues. Unfortunately the flights for the darts had been damaged so we were unable to play. I suggested to Huw that he purchase the darts that have a full plastic end to avoid damage. We drove to the SPAR in the local village a few times, this was a really handy to have near by. Unless you're an avid walker who doesn't mind steep hills, it's definitely a car journey! We had asda home delivery within 2 hours of arriving and this workedwell. There is a book in the property advising of local services which is also useful. We visited in December and for us it was a trip to relax and do next to nothing, but I'm sure in the summer it'd be a great base to explore nearby. We'd all love to come back here and spend some quality time together as a family in a quality property! Nobody should have any doubts about booking this property.

  • "The property was immaculate and clean, the welcome box full of Christmas goodies was such a lovely touch."

    The bedrooms were just so lovely with beautiful linen and soft white towels left in each bathroom. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely book again in the future. We really could not fault it and would recommend to friends and family. I would just note, I think more wine glasses are needed as there were only 4 cupboard which was not ideal for a group of 10 people. I would also note 1 Tea towel was not enough either.

  • "My family and I were delighted with everything about this property."

    The bedrooms and bathrooms were immaculate, and Huw and Caroline, the owners, couldn't have been more helpful looking after us and the hot tub! The only issue really was the WIFI (for the younger people in our group! ) but this is more a fibre optic issue and may be resolved in time. The "cottage" was really well designed and comfortable with fabulous views. It is certainly a place to return to.
